Great Visual Effects, stunning work!!! Shane is an inspiration to all short film makers.

Brilliant Characters set in a visually fantastic backyard war zone. Dramatic lighting and gutting CGI environments create an astounding miniature world in trouble. Simple yet profound story telling without words, transcends past language barriers producing a universal story for all.

With this film you can definitely see Shane's progress of his previous Good films to this breath taking achievement in short film making.

A must see for any fan of animated shorts with stunning imagery.
